Construction and Inspections
The Medford Township Construction Department is responsible for ensuring that all construction work in the Township complies with the requirements of the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code. The Department consists of clerical staff and licensed inspectors to perform the duties of the office.
Contractors working on residential construction projects are required to be registered with the NJ Division of Consumer Affairs. A valid Home Improvement Contractors Registration issued by this Division is required to be submitted with every permit application. For more information and the application, please click here for the NJ Consumer Affairs website.
Please note that the Construction Office conducts housing inspections only for complaints. To obtain a Certificate of Occupancy for a residential resale and/or rental unit, please contact the Fire Department. For those units with public water and/or sewer, please contact the Utility Billing office.
The Construction Office must utilize State of New Jersey Uniform Construction Code forms. Click HERE to be connected to the State's UCC website, which has each of the forms listed below available as a PDF download.
To check which forms may be required for your permit, please refer to our CONSTRUCTION PERMIT CHECK LIST. **UCC-F100 -Construction Permit Application--Required for ALL permits
